Congrats, you are a #WITCOMMIT! Now What?



We are excited you will be joining us at Wentworth!

Did you share the news that you are attending Wentworth on social media? Be sure to include #WITCOMMIT in your post! Now that you are a #WITCOMMIT, what’s next on the checklist? Below are some important dates and deadlines to keep on your radar.

1. Activate your Wentworth email address:

Before students can log into LConnect or their email they need to activate their account by changing their password. If they haven’t done this they can follow these instructions:

How do I activate my L-Connect account?

2. Enter your username into the “Username” field (your username can be found on your admission letter)
3. Enter your temporary password in the “Old Password” field (WIT1$ and the last six (6) digits of your Wentworth ID, which can also be found on your acceptance letter)
4. Review the secure password requirements displayed on the screen
5. Enter the password you created in the “New Password” and “Confirm New password” fields
6. Click the “Change Password” button.
***Please help us keep your account secure by never sharing your password with others. Wentworth will never ask for your password to verify your identity or for any other reason.

Having technical issues? Please contact the Division of Technology Services (DTS) at 617-989-4500.

2. Register for Orientation: New Student Orientation (NSO) is your opportunity to explore campus and meet your fellow classmates. You also learn which courses you will be taking in your first semester and how to register. Attending New Student Orientation is mandatory but don’t worry, you’ll have a ton of fun! There are no fees for any of the NSO programs. Parents and family can even take part in a one-day Parent & Family Orientation!

Read more about what to expect at NSO and the dates that you can attend here!

Transfer Students: Transfer students are invited and encouraged to attend a transfer orientation on July 30th. More information will come at a later date!

International Students: We understand the high cost of travel, so we also do not require International Students to attend New Student Orientation. We do require International Students to attend Wentworth Opening Week and International Student Orientation which will take place right before the start of classes.

3. Living on Campus?  Housing Agreement and Roommate Questionnaire: Both the housing agreement and roommate matching questionnaire will become available to students on May 31st. Students are not required to participate in the roommate questionnaire. Students are welcome to room with a friend from high school or someone that they meet at orientation. The questionnaire is a means of pairing students up with a roommate based on living preferences.

4. Fall 2019 E-Bills: On June 20th, you will be able to view your E-Bill through LConnect. Students should also remember to assign their parent as a proxy on their account, especially if their parent is paying the bill.

E-Bill questions? Please contact the Student Service Center 617-989-4020 or ssc@wit.edu. 

5. Housing Selection July 15th-19th: Students will be notified of their housing selection slot, which will specify their date and time to choose housing. If you have already found a roommate at Orientation, the student with the earlier selection time will place both themselves and their roommate in a room.

Questions about housing? Please contact Housing & Residential Life 617-989-4160 or housing@wit.edu.
